Hovland Town Hall | Hovland MN

Don’t miss the Annual Hovland Arts Festival, featuring art, artists, food, and live music, 10 am – 4 pm each day.  As you might expect, things may look a little different this year. We are planning on keeping the festival outside in the parking lot, and having the Town Hall closed.
